FAQs about making Twitter banners
How should I design my Twitter banner?
Adhere to three rules: Keep things brand-focused, aim for quality over quantity (you don’t have much room, so minimalism is the name of the game), and keep important visual elements near the center of your banner (see: the safe zone) so that they aren’t cut off by your profile picture.
What size should my Twitter banner be?
The perfect Twitter banner size is 1500 x 500 pixels. Lucky for you, our templates are pre-sized so that you never have to worry about uploading a wonky design.
